I shot this last Sunday afternoon near Fort Point, at the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge. The sun was still quite high in the clear sky, causing a lot of hard shadows everywhere. I really liked the textured contrast of this chain link fence but I also wanted to capture a bit of “location feel” so I composed the image to include some of the Golden Gate Bridge in the background. I didn’t want the bridge to over-power the fence, so I widened the aperture a bit to keep it out of focus and maintain focus on the chain link. I really like the highly textured link against the smoothness of the blurred Golden Gate.
Exposure: 1/2500 at F/2.8, ISO 100 – Pentax 10-17mm Fish-Eye
